Calls are free from mobiles and landlines. We record calls to help improve our service to you.

We’ll look after your boiler, controls, central heating system , plumbing, drains and home electrics with HomeCare Four with a Gas Safety Certificate. We will carry out a gas safety check at the same time as your annual boiler service, providing you with a Gas Safety Certificate, helping you to meet your obligations as a landlord. If you have any other gas appliances at the property, you can get these checked and added to the certificate for a small additional fee.

Prudhoe Homeowner
Our annual service for our boiler was booked for between 12 pm and 2 pm. The engineer rang around 10.30 am to say he would be there in 20 minutes. I pretended that I may have made a mistake about the time. The engineer said, it's 10 to 12 in my book. Luckily we were in.

Early days yet but we are sure once we have used it for a while we will profit in more ways than one.
